Located in a wide valley in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, about 30km northeast of Florence, Mugello's is a modern and distinctive circuit, very suitable for motorcycles and owned by Ferrari since 1988.
At 5,245m long, the circuit combines slow and fast corners, climbs and descents, the kind that both riders and spectators enjoy.
First Grand Prix in 1976 and, after complete renovation, since 1991 it has been one of the must-see events on the world championship calendar.
The curves of Arrabbiata 1 and 2 are characteristic, not forgetting Correntaio and the very fast Biondetti. Also characteristic is the long pit straight for the difficult San Donato braking.
The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello represents an averagely demanding circuit for braking systems. This is told by Brembo engineers working with all the MotoGP riders, who on a scale of 1 to 6 gave it a difficulty index of 3. In terms of features, the track also boasts one of the longest straights in the World Championship(1,141 meters), which requires a powerful engine and, of course, a top-notch braking system so as not to lose under braking what one might have gained on the straight.
